Dear Friends,

We hope you can join us for an Agitprop reading at the San Diego
Museum of Art this Thursday, July 22,  7pm, with James Meetze.

In conjunction with Agitprop Gallery, the Agitprop Reading Series is
collaborating with the San Diego Museum of Art to present Thursday
Summer Salons featuring contemporary artists and writers from Southern
California. Museum admission is $12 for adults, $8 for students with
college ID, and open to the public. The reading will take place in the
room with the “Heroes: Mortals and Myths in Ancient Greece”
Exhibition.

James Meetze’s book Dayglo was selected by Terrance Hayes as winner of
the 2010 Sawtooth Poetry Prize from Ahsahta Press. He is also the
author of I Have Designed This For You (2007), and editor, with Simon
Pettet, of Other Flowers: Uncollected Poems by James Schuyler (Farrar,
Straus & Giroux, 2010). The recipient of the 2001 Poet Laureate Award
from the University of California, he has taught poetry and creative
writing at the University of California, San Diego, California State
University, San Marcos, and in the MFA Program at National University.
He lives in San Diego with his soon-to-be wife Lorelei, his son
Brighton, and their cats.

During your visit will be able to explore the works of living artists
and writers, participate in hands-on art making activities, enjoy a
cocktail, and view the Museum’s current exhibitions and collections.
We invite the public to join some of the most exciting artists working
in Southern California and immerse themselves in what’s happening
right now in our local art scene

Artist Presentations will be occurring in the museum before and after
the reading: Known also as the one man band Author and Punisher,
Tristan Shone will haul his drone machines inside the Museum to play
some songs from his latest album and Bombshell! Boom Boom will conduct
both an instrument making workshop and marching band procession for
all.
